If you answered mostly A’s you are: Traditionalist

You might follow fashion trends, but you think the way you decorate your home should be long-lasting. Bed-skirts, drapes, wallpaper, and perfectly pressed white linens are the name of the game for you. Take time when you are decorating, because you’ll have the pieces you scoop up for a lifetime.

If you answered mostly B’s you are: Girly Glam

You still get heart palpitations while watching the opening scene of “Clueless.” You think there is no such thing as too much pink. And you love your furniture quilted, just like your favorite Chanel bag. Comfort is also important to you—you want a bed that you can curl up in after a long day, and a warm, inviting living room, perfect for throwing champagne and cupcake bashes.

If you answered mostly C’s you are: A Minimalist

Less is more to you as far as your interior design style goes. The world may be hectic, and crazy, but that doesn’t mean your home has to be. Clean lines, very few knickknacks (if any), and a color palette of black and white is really what you are after.

If you answered mostly D’s you are: A Bohemian

Nothing about your home is too thought out, and practically ever piece has a story of where it came from. You would much rather pick up a chair from a Warsaw flea market than a standard catalogue, still, while your home might be a little all over the place, it has style in spades.

If you answered most E’s you are: Rococo Luxe

You visited Versailles when you were in high school, and thought: “Why can’t I live here?” The richer, the more gilded, and the more luxurious, the better. Your home might not be an actual castle, but you think it should look like one.

If you answered mostly F’s you are: Retro

When you remodeled your kitchen you installed retro mint green appliances. You spent hours styling your bar cart. And you wish your life was an episode of “Mad Men.”
